 ANTHROPOLOGY OF CONSECRATED LIFE: Theo-Anthropological Foundation 

Concecrated Life is a response to God's call in view of a specific and concrete mission. Hence, it has two distinct yet interwoven dimensions: a) divine, i.e., God's direct action and b) human, i.e., the human person's response (cf. Essential elements of Religious Life, n.5). This particular course will focus on the after dimension, without losing sight of the former. Accordingly, two areas will be studies: a) the origins of the forms of life called "religious life" in universal human experience and b) the human-personal structures which underlie the fundamental aspects of this form of life. In this second area course will treat the questions of freedom, responsibility, sexuality, commitment, sociality, and so forth.
